Watch the opening theme to Star Trek, the way it was always intended to be seen.

A series of posters by justinvg which depict Russian ‘victories’ during the early space race.

  1. Sputnik 1 (1957) - The announcement by the USSR that they had put this tiny metal ball into orbit was the cause of major concern for the US, sparking the space race.
  2. Luna Programme (1959-76) - Shortly after sending Sputnik 1 and 2 into Earth’s orbit, the Soviets set their sights even further, and successfully sent 15 probes to the Moon over a period of 17 years.
  3. Vostok 1 (1961) - The USSR became the first nation to send a person into space when Yuri Gagarin spent 81 minutes orbiting the Earth.
  4. Voskhod 1 (1965) - This mission saw another milestone set by the Soviets when Alexei Leonov became the first person to perform extra-vehicular activity.

They did beat us to several milestones, but thankfully we’ve since reconciled our differences and are exploring the cosmos together. And by “exploring the cosmos together” I mean that we are completely reliant on them to get our astronauts into space.

Previously: Don’t miss these amazing vintage Soviet space propaganda posters! And whatever this is supposed to mean!?
